Leap Motion Review
     Mon, Aug 26 2013 | 9:03A | Software | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Leap Motion touts its controller as a new paradigm in human input devices, allowing users to wave, swipe and poke their way through a digital world otherwise meant for keyboards, mice and touchscreens. The miniscule gadget barely measures larger than a USB flash drive, however inside the Leap you'll find two cameras and three infrared LEDs capable of tracking hand and finger movements in all three spatial dimensions. Making use of motion-sensing technology to interact with your computer is at least refreshing, if not magical.

Transcend ESD200 128GB External USB 3.0 SSD
     Mon, Aug 26 2013 | 9:02A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“You are likely familiar with the concept of an external hard drive. It’s simply a standard hard drive of the 2.5? or 3.5? flavor tossed into an external case that connects to your computer typically via USB. Most people have one and use them for transferring large amounts of data or doing PC backups. Transcend took the typical external hard drive idea and replaced the old mechanical drive with a 2.5? SSD. The result is the ESD200 USB 3.0 external SSD, available in 128GB and 256GB flavors. We have the 128GB model to review, so let’s check it out!”

     Mon, Aug 26 2013 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“Looking to capitalize on the attractive mid-range performance gaming market, the MSI GTX 760 HAWK looks to bring the features of its more powerful siblings at much lower price point. We have high expectations of this MSI card, as the company has been touting its premium Military-classed components to extract the maximum overclocking prowess out of the card. We got it on the bench and juiced up the voltages, looking to put up some screaming numbers. Did we? Hellya. Let’s take a closer look at the MSI GTX 760 HAWK and find out just how high it can fly.”

41 Megapixels Take Flight: Nokia Lumia 1020 Rides
     Mon, Aug 26 2013 | 9:00A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There's no question, what we do here at HotHardware definitely has its perks. Sure, the hours are long, the work can be grueling with benchmark run after run, take after take in the video studio or fighting with finicky, just-released products that don't want to cooperate. So what sorts of things do we do to relax and blow off a little steam? Well, sometimes we take the hardware for a joy ride; in this case quite literally. You may recall our recent review and showcase of Nokia's Lumia 1020 Windows Phone, with its high resolution 41 Megapixel camera, floating image stabilization and Carl Zeiss optics. Of course you do. We were pretty impressed by the device actually and more-so with its on-board HD camera and Pro Cam app software. So, when we got done putting the new Lumia 1020 through its paces, you might say we "kicked it up a notch" -- as in, say about 50 feet straight up, above the tree line...

Posted by: STAFF
EVGA is hitting the PSU market and the competition hard with their latest PSU offerings. The new SuperNOVA G2 1300 W delivers exceptionally good performance at a very nice price, which actually has the unit compete with its 1000 W capacity sibling since the price difference is minimal."

Aerocool XPredator X3 review: complete mid-range chassis
     Sun, Aug 25 2013 | 4:02P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We liked the Aerocool XPredator X3 chassis. It has a design that stands out from the crowd, without overdoing it. The shell-like vents on the top help the cooling, and look neat. It doesn't lack in features, the build quality and finish are good and the plastic is of decent quality. For this price point, the XPredator X3 provides everything you expect. The fan controllers are a nice extra, along with the external 2.5-inch dock.

Palit GeForce GTX 760 Jetstream
     Sun, Aug 25 2013 | 4:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Palit’s Jetstream card improves almost everything about Nvidia's reference GeForce GTX 760. The upgraded cooler not only looks great but it also works extremely well, while the card's factory overclock offers about 8% more performance than the stock design, which was enough speed to outpace the Radeon HD 7950 in most of our tests.

Intel DZ87KLT-75K LGA1150 Desktop Motherboard Review
     Sun, Aug 25 2013 | 4:01P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Until a few years ago, Intel motherboards were, well, boring: reliable, sure, and well-made, but without any really interesting features that would appeal to enthusiasts. That started changing around the time of the Z68 chipset, and although Intel has announced they?ll stop manufacturing desktop motherboards in the near future, the Z87-based DZ78KLT-75K makes a good swan song."

Intel DZ87KLT-75K Motherboard @ Hardware Secrets

Posted by: STAFF
The Intel DZ87KLT-75K is a high-end socket LGA1150 motherboard targeted for the Haswell processors (fourth-generation Core i3, Core i5, and Core i7 processors), coming with a Thunderbolt port, one Mini PCI Express/mSATA slot, a PLX switch chip, and more.

Intel HD 4600 vs. AMD A10-5800/6800K vs. GPU @ Ocaholic
     Sun, Aug 25 2013 | 4:01P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With Haswell`s IGP Intel had set itself ambitious goals. One for example is that they want to heat up the competition with AMD when it comes to integrated grahics performance. Wether Intel is going to succeed or not and how Intel`s HD 4600 as well as AMD`s HD 7660D and HD 8670D are going to stack up again discrete GPU`s that`s what we`re going to show with this article."
